ç in and to pa that. and here is where you get to harry reid. this is where mike pence was right. harry reid says we haven't been talking about reconciliation. he just exploded about it almost with lamar. that's not right, andrea. >> that's fiction. >> we've been on television saying should they do it by that? can they do it by that? >> not just us. we're not making this up. >> everybody in this town and harry reid acted as if lamar had insult insulted him because they were talking about reconciliation. >> couple of situations tip iyp where this thing is going. john mccain and the president having a heated exchange, most remarkable exchange so far. why? mccain was going back, litigating the politics of last year while the president was trying to reach out and get solutions to the problem. congressman pence's remarks, basically foreshadow where they're headed. he was in the spin room, already declaring this thing a failure and already saying we have to scrap the bill, which again is code for we have to kill this process. pat, i agree. >> i think that's a mistake. the way lamar has handled it, the

a price for prioritizing the issue. one of them is senate majority leader harry reid, whom the president praised. >> you could not have a better fighter on behalf of the people of nevada than senator harry reid. i am just proud -- i am proud to call him a friend. >> joining us now gloria borger. clearly the president is doing whatever he can to try to help him get reelected. >> harry reid is in some real trouble. right now he's polling behind all his potential republican opponents in the state and trying to tell the folks in nevada it's good to have the senate majority leader on your side, don't forget that, but it's tricky, because while harry reid pushes the president's agenda, he's differed with him on the sides of the jobs bill. the white house was kind of surprised when harry reid went to $15 billion, so there's some things that the white house and harry reid have to work out. >> he's got a bigger problem than harry reid, obviously, in the west. >> he does. the democrats have made a lot of gains in the west. in 2008, as you know, the president won colorado, new mexico, nevada. they

bill, the administration is running into an unexpected obstructionist, prince harry reid. he announced earlier today that he is not on board with the so-called jobs bill and that he has taken it back to the drawing board. >> we're going to move this afternoon to a smaller package than we talked about in the press. so the republicans, i don't know in logic what they could say to oppose this, but in -- we've seen since obama was elected, they have opposed everything, they're the party of no. >> so prince harry thinks the bill is too bloated, so is he right and how will the administration react to the most recent break in the ranks? joining me with reaction is the former arkansas governor with the host of his own show called hannity. mike huckabee is with us. >> it ought to be called hannity >> you host that show huckabee. all right. so we've got this jobs bill. i want to ask you a different question. the president is trying to get the republicans to go along with this deficit reduction commission, trying to get them to go along with this town hall on health care. i think the republicans

! harry reid wasn't exactly in command of facts. here's what he had to say about the possibility of using reconciliation or the nuclear option to ram this bill through congress. >> you're entitled to your opinion but not your own facts. no one has said, i read what the president has on, no one has talked about reconciliation but that's what you folks talked about since it came out as if it is something that has never been done before. >> sean: apparently senator reid is working with his own set of facts he's been floating the idea for weeks. >> you keep talking about if there might be reconciliation. you cannot get health care reform passed without doing reconciliation, say it right here! >> john, listen, reconciliation can be used for different purposes. we can write a new bill or use reconciliation to pass the bill we've already passed. >> sean: joining me with reaction to today's health care summit former alaska governor sarah palin. governor looks like a winter wonderland, how cold is it there? >> it's about 20° but it is beautiful to us. isn't gorgeous and clean and healthy? it is w

in the spirit of bipartisanship prince harry reid has issued a message to his friends across the aisle. >> realistically they should stop crying about reconciliation as if it has never been done before. >> sean: oddly he felt differently about the issue when republicans wanted to use reconciliation to stop democratic filibusters. >> the government in which one party has control over all the decisions is bad for america and bad for all our people. our country works better when we cooperate and work towards compromises that benefit the greatest good and not one group over another. >> sean: reid was not the only one who viewed reconciliation dimly. there was a senator named barack obama who fought bitterly against it as well. >> what i worry about would be you essentially have still two chambers the house and senate, but you have simply majority absolute power on either side that is not what the founders intended. >> sean: i wonder what mainstream media is going to ask the anointed one about that? they may want to ask hillary clinton another opponent of the nuclear option when she served

, nancy pelosi and harry reid are still scheming and plotting trying to find some way to pass the massive government take-over of the healthcare system. >> neil: what did you make when nancy pelosi said, congressman -- but essentially the climate events will nosedive -- if i'm getting this through, even healthcare. she is not giving up. >> no, she is not giving up at all! it's the policies that are coming out of this administration and the liberals here in congress that i think are holding back employers. they don't know what to do. they don't know whether the healthcare plan is going to pass with the new tax increases that are in that plan. they don't know what the tax rates are going to be come the end of this year. until there is some certainty out there in the marketplace, until employers feel more comfortable about what the future looks like and what washington is going to do, i expect to continue to sit on their hands. >> neil: you know, the argument the president has is that is what your republicans are doing. remember he talked about the spon s c-span thing. they don't need market

significant is senate majority leader harry reid's statement on this? >> it's fairly significant. it shows that no one in the leadership, nor the white house or the senate, wants to rule out a publix option but the question has always been the centrus public option. you have 20 senators signing on to a letter but need at least 50. >> what was the count in terms of senators supporting a public option before it was traded away. >> well, this is what so one is quite clear on. there were two to four senators in terms of who killed the public option. but a broader number of democratic senators are not thrilled with the idea. they were happy to have it be joe lieberman's fault. now the question s. are there ten who want to take responsibility for blocking this. i'm not clear that there are but i'm not clear that there are 50 that wanted it in. >> let's say that there are 50 democrats who wanted it. what are the other ones that they had to worry about? >> there's a question of abortion, which was very contentious in the house bill. it looks like bart stupack and pro life democrats jumping ship. t

. republicans seemed kind of might haved when harry reid did this. what happens next? do republicans sign on to this smaller bill that reid is proposing? what about all the stuff that reid took out? is that something that congress is likely to act on? what's the next step? >> that's the $1 million question -- what do republicans do now? while they signed on to this bigger compromise, included in the stuff that harry reid took out are provisions that are important to the republicans, like a big part of why they agreed to the compromise, tax breaks for businesses, an extension of some that had expired. so right now they're all really mad because they thought that they had a deal, and the deal was off. and so they're not going to be voting on anything for another week because congress is in recess. and as soon as they come back harry reid has scheduled a test vote, and the question is whether republicans are still going to be so mad about the deal-breaking that they're willing to vote against a bill that has provisions that they not only supported. gwen: dan? >> nancy pelosi, the speaker of
